The last few years more and more girls have realized what an amazing and enjoyable game poker really is. A few of them has been really successful and turned into pros. One of them is Annette Obrestad from Norway who has already won millions of dollars even though she is just 20 years old. Now she's on the second place in Aussie Millions with 454,800 chips. And on the first place we find another girl, Annica Ivert from Sweden who has dominated Day 2 and now has 555,900 chips.

320 players were still in the tournament as Day 2 started. Top 10 players from Day 1 a, b and c were.

What no one probably had expected was that 2 girls and an unknown player named David Docherty would dominate Day 2 of Aussie Millions. David had less than 10,000 chips when Day 2 started and turned it into 362,000 chips. Annica Ivert from Sweden brought 81,575 chips with her from Day 1b and had been playing very well so far in the tournament. She continued to play great poker during Day 2 and is now the chip leader. Annette Obrestad is a well known poker pro from Norway that has been winning a WSOP Bracelet and also been considered to be one of the best online multi-table tournament players in the world. Annette had around 45,000 chips when Day 2 started. Then she put in the second gear and turned her 45k into 454.000. Other notable pros that still are in tournament, Patrik Antonius (335,900), Noah Schwartz (255,000), Sorel Mizzi (190,000), Joe Cabret (117,000), Scotty Nguyen (54,000) and Joe Hachem (39,000)

Still in the tournament are now only 58 players with the chance of winning the first prize of AUD 2,000,000.
